Wet Shaving, Luxury Grooming and Smiles

This grade of hair is the least expensive badger option. It is often darker or even black in color. It does not hold as much water as the higher-end grades of hair, but still is effective in creating a lather and lifting the whiskers.

Why pay more?
After being very satisfied with a Parker BHPB for the past three years, I was looking for a comparable brush with a slightly larger handle and a little more loft. Having tried a number of more expensive brushes from well-known brands, I came back to WCS for the Parker WHPB and now that I've used it for a couple of weeks (shaving daily) I can say it's exactly what I have been looking for. It's a slightly larger version of the BHPB with a little more backbone - perfect! I use the two for creams, Proraso red and Bigelow, and use a Simpson Commodore X2 for Proraso white croap in the tub (hopefully, WCS will be adding the new Proraso white in the tube) in regular rotation. Don't let the low price fool you - this is a great brush that feels and works as well as brushes costing 2 - 3 times more.

Great brush!
This brush is an excellent "first" badger brush. Much less expensive than silver tip, not much more than a good boar brush. Just enough backbone and an intermediate "skritchiness" with the softness of badger. I really like this brush, maybe more so than my silver tip badger...I do like a bit of skritchy.

Excellent brush
Like the workmanship that went into making this brush. I look forward to many years of good service from this brush.

Great value
I use this brush a whenever I'm in a hurry to shave. The small size and stiff bristles create a thick creamy lather that provides great lubrication. It doesn't take much soap, water, or time to get it going. Pure Badger is underrated for its ability to create a great lather. The value for the price can't be beat.



The only downside is that the brush I received had a very strong badger funk stink. I tried all the remedies of soaking in citrus cleaning solution, etc..., and nothing really worked. The only thing that worked was time using a citrus-based soap without tallow. I tried it once with a tallow-based soap with musky scent, and nearly threw up. But after a month of break-in, the funk was gone, and it works great on all types of soaps. Perhaps a fair tradeoff for such an inexpensive brush, and perhaps the more expensive pure badger brushes have less odor out of the box.
